Detect the ActiveX Control is able to run

P: n/a
Hi,

Is there anyway to detect the ActiveX control is able to run on the browser
or not?

After I installed the ActiveX control to my system, user sometimes switch
the secruity setting to "not able to run ActiveX control". So, the ActiveX
control just show on the broswer, but not able to run it.

I want to find a way to detect it. And prompt the user a message telling
that the ActiveX control is not able to run.

You don't need to....... the browser will tell the user that the page is
trying to run an ActiveX.

I know that.

But I want to customize a page and tell the user what to do. Therefore, I
need to capture the event.

Attempt to call a method in the control, and trap the error

Won't the browser detect it before the page calls the method? (I was under
the impression that the browser detects these things before the page has a
chance to do anything......?)
